In short: One of the best 10k races in the area In full: Taken part in this race for the past 3 years and I always find it well organised with a great atmosphere. I think the amount of runners taking part each year proves its worth. My only complaint is there are never enough toilets.
In short: My local run - and one of the best In full: I have done this run every year since it began, its getting a little busy now although it was not as bad as expected this year - good fun and well organised. Date of review: April 22, 2012
In short: Good course but too crowded In full: To echo previous comments, lovely course but start needs to be staggered more as too congested. I started between the 50/55mins point and I was trying to get past people walking in first 2 km. And what the chap was thinking trying to ride a bike the wrong way down the footpath with 2000 runners coming the opposite way... surprisingly he got knocked over. But apart from that, picturesque, nice flat course, definite pb potential and good support Date of review: April 18, 2012
In short: An excellent race again, but crowded In full: A thoroughly enjoyable race with an interesting course and great support through Leamington Spa. However, as many people have commented, the constricted footpaths and trails for the first 5k make it nigh on impossible for overtaking! Nontheless, a thoroughly enjoyable day out, perfect prep for the London marathon next week Date of review: April 17, 2012
In short: Interesting range of scenery and areas In full: Relatively big field so I imagine it gets congested further back on tight paths in first 5k. Towards the front it was fine. Interesting course with most inclines in the first 5k. Part of Warwickshire Road Race League so quite a lot of club vests present although this seemed perfectly fine for fun runners and first timers too Date of review: April 17, 2012
In short: Another good Regency 10K in the usual glorious sunshine In full: Bit biassed as I can walk to the start, but this really is a good race despite congestion in first half. Great mix of scenery, good local support,encouraging marshalls, and a real mix of club and non-club runners. And yet again the sun shone! Not sure it can get much bigger though given narrow paths round Newbold Comyn .. Date of review: April 15, 2012
